A medida que su relación crece, Milly decide emprender un viaje lleno de valentía de regreso a su paÍs natal y en el camino descubre que la historia de su nacimiento está entrelazada con la historia de un país que se recupera de una brutal historia marcada por la dictadura y la corrupción política.

    great book, e book filled with errors

    As a second language Spanish speaker I found the many errors distracting. There was at least one error per page. Great theme and great author.
